SAN FRANCISCO – JAN. 21, 2009 – MuleSoft, the Web Middleware Company, today announced that the latest release of its enterprise-class web application server, Tcat Server 6 R2, has been exhaustively tested to support the newest version of Apache Tomcat 6.0.24, also announced today. Tcat Server gives Tomcat users enterprise-class functionality, including server group management, Tomcat configuration management, application provisioning, and Tomcat monitoring and performance diagnostics.
“Mulesoft continues to show its commitment to the Tomcat community by supporting the latest and most stable Tomcat releases as they become available."
- Jason Brittain, MuleSoft architect and co-author of Tomcat: the Definitive Guider
“Tomcat 6.0.24 gives users some important improvements and bug fixes, including aggressive webapp and JDK memory leak handing, an HTTPS vulnerability fix, major updates and bug fixes to Tomcat's database connection pooling code, and greatly improved support for JMX and jconsole. In addition to those, 6.0.24 includes many thread safety, clustering, and Windows installer fixes, making it a great release.”
Tcat is based 100% on the Apache Tomcat binary, with zero changes to the core code. The server’s enterprise-class functionality allows IT teams to migrate from heavyweight legacy platforms — such as Oracle WebLogic or IBM WebSphere — to the lightweight open source option, Tomcat. Users can also quickly and seamlessly deploy Tcat Server in the cloud using the Amazon EC2 plug-in. The plug-in enables customers to quickly configure, monitor and diagnose Tomcat using a web browser from any remote location.
“Tcat Server is built on the original and unmodified Apache release binary distribution of Tomcat. This means existing users of Tcat Server can immediately upgrade to the newest version of Tomcat without having to wait for the vendor to release an upgrade,” said Sateesh Narahari, director of product management at MuleSoft. “This is significantly different from other enterprise Tomcat products such as tc Server.”
Tcat Server 6 R2 is free to use in development and pre-production environments. Production subscriptions and support for Apache Tomcat starts at $595 per CPU per year. For more information or to download, please visit www.mulesoft.com.
